MIAMI, July 07 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Americas Market Intelligence (AMI) has released a new report that robustly analyzes and quantifies surface risk for mining projects in Latin Americaincluding those of Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Bolivia: a total of 16 key mining jurisdictions in Latin America and the Caribbean are covered. The Latin America Mining Risk Index 2022 rates risk in seven key areas:
Legal and regulatory instability Reputational risk
“Financial investors, project finance lenders and miners are well aware of the risks associated with mining in latin americabut until now lacked the tools to quantify country risk from a mining perspective when evaluating new projects,” explains Alejandro Alvarez, co-director of AMI’s mining practice. “We created the index to quantify risk, but more importantly, to identify particular risk issues that their due diligence and risk mitigation efforts should focus on in a given country,” says Álvarez.
Available for Free download on the AMI website, the Latin America Mining Risk Index 2022 was created via a proprietary method by AMI’s practice mining team, using over 70 different measurements. “After studied the Latin American mining sector for 20 yearsacross a dozen jurisdictions, we have realized that mining investors and lenders often lack detailed guidance on surface risk across jurisdictions,” observes John Price, co-director of AMI’s mining practice. “The real value of the report lies in how it identifies the most pressing risk issues in each country. It is these risks that pre-investment due diligence should focus on, as well as aerial risks particular to a given mine site. It is by doing due diligence on local mining investment risk that lenders, investors and miners turn to AMI for help,” says Price.
